Steele doubles down on the dishonesty
The dishonesty of Rob Steele, the teabagger Republican Congressional candidate for the 15th District who will soon be sent home by U.S. Rep. John Dingell, D-Dearborn, is absolutely stunning.
Less than a week after being called out in his lame attempt to fool voters into believing he has labor support by calling his campaign workers Steelworkers, he doubled down on the dishonest toady, and he adopted a logo he is asking supporters to use as their profile photo on Facebook that says “Steelworkers United Local MI-15.”
Last week the real Steelworkers, the United Steelworkers (USW), formally endorsed Congressman Dingell. This is a lame but obvious attempt Steele to confuse and fool voters.
The irony is that last week Steele also made the ridiculous and false claim that Dingell – get this - copied his web site.
Make no mistake about it, this is an obvious attempt to con voters, and the USW should present Steel with a cease and desist order to stop him from impersonating them. This man is no friend of working people.
